“Kantrowitz’s new series of paintings is titled “Daughters of Leucippus,” and is a close and precise observation of the fibers, tissues and corpuscles of torn fruit and vegetables. In the paintings, fruit acts as a surrogate for the human body bringing all its implied seduction, destruction and regeneration. To make this substitution more explicit, the artist has borrowed the title of a Peter Paul Rubens painting, “The Rape of the Daughters of Leucippus” from 1618.”
